How I Go Way Back

WayBack MachineTime machines aren't real...except on the Internet. This time machine fascinates me. WayBack Machine is a documentary record of the internet. Not just a story about it. The actual thing.

It's a snapshot of more or less every web page. Ever. It's mind-blowing. Just imagining the storage space required for this effort crosses my eyes.

WayBack Machine will be of particular interest to researchers who need to know whether or not a particular website is legitimate. And to me, who just likes to look at old stuff.

Bet you can't name a cooler research resource. C'mon. Bet me.
